‘BBC America has released some first-look photos of Season 2 of its Golden Globe-nominated drama Killing Eve. The series, starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, recently wrapped production in Europe and is slated to premiere in spring 2019.
Killing Eve, produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd and based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings, hails from Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge. It centers on two women; Eve (Oh) is a bored, whip-smart, pay-grade security services operative whose desk-bound job doesn’t fulfill her fantasies of being a spy. Villanelle (Comer) is an elegant, talented killer who clings to the luxuries her violent job affords her. These two fiercely intelligent women, equally obsessed with each other, go head to head in an epic game of cat and mouse. Fiona Shaw also stars as Carolyn Martens.
The first season saw an unbroken record of weekly ratings growth in the key adults 25-54 and 18-49 demos, along with Emmy nominations for star Oh in the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category and a drama series writing nom for Waller-Bridge. The series was named Best New Show by the Television Critics Association.
Killing Eve is executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris, Waller-Bridge, Gina Mingacci and Emerald Fennell. Oh is co-executive producer. Elinor Day serves as series producer. The series is produced by Sid Gentle Films Ltd. and distributed by Endeavor Content. Damon Thomas returns to direct and is also executive producer, with Lisa Brühlmann and Francesca Gregorini also directing.’
